Simon Dubnow Institute
for Jewish History and Culture at Leipzig University


The annual conferences extending over several days and held in English are dedicated to one of the thematic focus areas of the Institute. They are intended to generalize and internationalize the objects of research at the Institute in disciplinary terms.


These international conferences help to generate diverse contacts that promote the inclusion of the Institute in various networks. Their participants are the leading figures in the respective field as well as young scholars presenting the findings of their research in this venue. Selected papers from the annual conferences appear in the Institute's Yearbook.
